The cremation urn is a natural centerpiece for the memorial service table at the front of the funeral event center. But you probably don’t want to just set the urn in the middle of a simple tablecloth – this is an opportunity to showcase the unique personality of your loved one.
Their style may have been simple or ornate; their personality may have been outlandish or contemplative; their hobbies may have been reading or sports or gardening or anything else; whatever the particulars were, the way the urn and photo and flowers are arranged can reflect their warmth or class, their sense of humor or philisophical nature, their motherly affection or fatherly strength.
The urn sitting on the table has their remains, but the memory of their life and love lives on in your hearts. The way you decorate the table and accent the urn can serve as both a tribute to your loved one and an expression of your grief in honoring their memory.
